a background of slower economic recovery. opec expects demand for crude to rise as the dploe ball economy picks up. some analysts say opec could consider cutting output. heres a cck on markets. >>> nhk special coverage japan general election is a click away. we'll be adding features to our web and mobile sites. in-depth looks on what could define the campaign. get online and get informed >>> delegates from more than 100 countries noticed them as legitimate people. barack obama did the same thing a day earlier. the de the delegates met in morocco, the so-called friends of syria from the u.s., european union, and various arab countries. more than 50 opposition groups formed the coalition last month. the friends of syria say the organization is now the lawful government. should step down.bashar assad delegates did not state whether they would provide weapons to the coalition. some are concerned that those weapons could fall into the hands of radicals. a spokesperson said that they believe their allies will help arm them if the situation changes. the leaders of russia and china continue to support
per barrel. that's just about where opec members want them. opec will be meeting tomorrow to see who will publicly lead the group. joining us for , zendana hari. good morning. what are your expectations for this meeting? >> we aren't expecting any major surprises so far based on what the ministers coming into the meeting have been saying publicly and even privately. officially, opec will stick to its 30 million a day barrel target. that covers all the members of the group. that would be actually production has been consistently higher ever since this target wab set. almost 1.1 million barrels above the target is what opec has cut into producing. >> heading into a meeting like this, incident isn't just about the supply, it's about demand. we've seen some softening in global production. how much will these countries have to produce next year? is it going to be a demand story ultimately as we look at global growth or is it going to be a supply story, about the middle east and where the flow is actually coming from? >> i think it will be a supply story. we saw entire libyan production ou
for the price. >> peter, to what degree do you think opec is able to manage prices? do they want them to be higher than they are or are they happy with the current levels? >> opec is happy with the current levels. saudi has been quite public over the last several years saying that it sees around 100 for the opec basket, a little bit more than that for brent, as being a fair price. much more than that, it starts to get concerned about impacting demand. lower than that it obviously impacts the revenues for social spending, as well. and i think opec has apparently been able to manage that but i think on its own, opec is unable to maintain that price if there are real pressures on the demand side. so i think the fact that we've had relative stability around 100, 110 dollars brent is a testimony not only for opec's ability to manage the price, which sink marginal, but a confluence of interests at the moment between both producers and suppliers that this meets somewhere fairly in the middle. >> peter, we've been fairly volatile. a lot of that's down it tto the o geopolitics. and i assume th
, the opec secretary said he doesn't see any threat from u.s. shale product, this after the uae minister has suggested a response from the oil ministers in vienna. gary ross, welcome. >> nice to be here. >> the shale revolution in the u.s., is it a game changer as much as we're hearing from jamie dimon, arcelormittal? do you think this is going to make the u.s. energy independent, almost? >> well, we think it is. it's huge. we've statemented about 11110 billion pounds of recovery oil from shale crude. u.s. product will be going up overall, about a million barrels a day in 2013. about 65% of it will be shale crude. and it will continue to grow. >> people should understand we're not just talking about gas. we're talking about methods that's right.extract more oil. gas is clearly surplus. we're going to have l&g exports in the united states. we have a long-term growth phenomenon for natural gas. what people don't realize is how huge the oil is. when we talk about $110 billion of recovered oil, that's on 7.5% recovery rate. the resource itself is huge. it's not just the united states. it's all o
is the supply side. at the moment, really we've got to see what opec wants to do. last year, the impact of the embargo wasn't -- was like a six week impact and it was forgotten about very quickly. and if you think about it, last year was a very, very steady year for oil prices. wti, as you said, is going to post the lowest rise in several years. in fact, i looked back in my forecast that i had for wti at the beginning of 2012. and it was $111 $a barrel. i moved it down to $110 in the middle of the year thinking it might get a little weaker and poked around and did absolutely nothing. >> i wonder whether the question is going to come back again into the oil markets given that we're looking at the israeli elections coming up in january. but back to the u.s. story, i find it hugely interesting, this notion of u.s. becoming energy independent on its own. do you really think it will happen? because i still talk to a couple of people in the oim and gas industry that say, you know what? it's a far cry from the reality out there. we're still going to see the middle east being the dominating oi
